This assignment will be using the small business Bacchus that you did for last week For this individual assignment, you will need to select a small business owner/manager in your community and request an interview. The objective is to pick this individual’s brain to learn how they started their business, what they did right, what went wrong, and what advice they can provide. Plan on talking for at least an hour (it may take longer). Go into the interview well prepared, with your questions defined and organized in advance. Using the questions in this lesson’s previous pages, develop your own approach to the interview, and try to collect as much information as you can. This assignment has two deliverables: your typed interview questions with a typed copy of the notes you took during the interview, and an interview narrative summarizing the interview (750–1,000 words). You are required to end your paper with a paragraph on the response you received to the question: “What advice/recommendations would the owner/manager have for an entrepreneur starting a new business?” This assignment is worth 10% of your grade. Please see the Interview Paper Rubric for details on how the assignment will be graded. Please submit your paper as an attachment. Your typed narrative should include an opening, body paragraphs with a logical flow, and a closing paragraph that contains your answer to the question: “What advice/recommendations would the owner/manager have for an entrepreneur starting a new business?” With the interviewee’s permission, you may want to consider recording the interview so that you can review it as you work on your assignment. Opening Provide background about the business (who, what, why, when, where), and include why you chose this business and/or interviewee for this project. The opening creates a setting for the body paragraphs that come next. One good practice is to start with an interesting anecdote or fact about the business or owner as an attention-getter that will draw the reader into your narrative. Body Paragraphs These paragraphs should flow in a logical way (such as chronologically) and can include organizing headers to help direct and orient the reader. Starting each paragraph with a major idea and supporting the major idea through the sentences that follow is a good practice you can follow for this narrative. An example is Jane Doe, the business owner, decided to start her small business the day she realized she had an answer to a problem that plagued many people she knew… (followed by the owner’s education, experience, and other supporting details). Closing The closing should include summarizing statements, conclusions, and advice/recommendations from the owner/manager for an entrepreneur starting a new business. Remember to use proper grammar and punctuation (e.g., quotation marks around direct quotes) and a professional tone. See less
